Twycross House B&B
Ranked #2 of 6 Penryn B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 16, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for one night when picking up our son from university. It's small, so nice and personal, and Ann and John were very welcoming and friendly, not only to us but also to our son, who came to see where we were staying. The room (with ensuite) was modern, clean and warm and the bed was comfortable, and there is a lounge for use of guests, where we enjoyed sitting and doing a crossword as a family. Being December, the house was decorated for Christmas, giving some cheer when the weather was dreary! The breakfast was fantastic with lots to choose from including some homemade jam.

The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is that it's on a main road, which makes it easy to find and it's very quick to get to the university, but some people might find the traffic disturbing, although it wasn't a problem for us.

Working in Cornwall, spent 1 night at Twycross House. Great B&B. Lovely room and guest lounge. Ann & John are great. Very welcoming and friendly. John even provided me with beer to watch the footie with!! The breakfast was excellent in a very nice dining room.
I would definately stay here again.

We chose this B&B because of it proximity to the University which we were visiting with our daughter for an Open Day. What a lovely place to stay - by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Ann and John were welcoming, friendly and extremely informative and helpful. The breakfasts were all the fuel we needed to keep us going though two very busy days. If our daughter chooses to study at Falmouth Uni we hope we will become regulars.

Room Tip: The family room is ideal for two adults and a teenager

Thank you for your most positive review of our B & B.
We hope your daughter does select Falmouth for her University course and if so look forward to seeing you again in the near future and perhaps stay a little longer and see what Cornwall has to offer.
Thanks again

A very pleasant night in a clean and modern b and b. Breakfast was great and just we needed to start what was a busy day down in Cornwall. We look forward to stopping by again in the near future, hopefully for a longer stay next time so we can get a chance to visit some more places in such a beautiful part of the country.

Just back from a night at Twycross House. We were visiting the university, and it was very close by. The house is well run, clean and comfortable, and our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. Overall, a good decision to stay there. We were lucky and they had a late cancellation. Would be looking to use them again, but would try to book ahead.

We stayed for one night in September, It is everything the previous reviews say and more. Nothing is too much trouble, the room has everything you might want, breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back when we next visit Cornwall.

This is an excellent b&b with everything you could ask for. It's not a quaint thatched roof cottage in a village if that's what you're after but a sleek modern house with all modern conveniences and hosts who can't do enough for you. The breakfast is superb and everything is exactly to order. Would not hesitate to recommend this property
